WHAT. NO, I’M PERFECTLY CALM. THERE ISN’T TOO MUCH NOISE AND TOO MUCH PEOPLE AND TOO MUCH GOING ON TO THE POINT WHERE I’M A TAD OVERSTIMULATED AND STRESSED OUT. I’M TOTALLY OKAY. TOTES.
CONTEXT: Willa does really care about her family, and I feel like there is some residual guilt from how she treated them as a teenager. Kind of lashing out at her mother deserting the family and her dad/multitude of siblings (remember, she’s number 3 of 6) were caught in the crossfire, especially her sister, Emily,… Continue reading Conversations with Younger Selves – Willa
It might only be strange because I’ve been in such a weird headspace for the past couple of weeks.

I keep telling myself that I can handle it, when the reality is it just makes things WORSE. And I’m not actually taking anything in except sheer… Continue reading The News
It’s a slippery slope. But I’m getting better at it.
I swear, I will get back to Drawtober eventually. I just needed to get this out of my head. Long story short: I got the job. Starting the week after next, I will be a full-time library circulation aide at a different branch in the system. And I have a lot of feelings about it.… Continue reading A Puddle of Emotions
